Animation has done particularly well at our festival. One of our jury award winning shorts in 2012 was nominated for a 2013 Academy Award, Head Over Heels. Also in 2012, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce won the Oscar for Best Animated Short.
Known as “The Writer’s Festival” since its inception 21 years ago, Austin Film Festival celebrates films built on strong storytelling. AFF recognizes the importance of the creator at the core of filmmaking and screens the highest caliber narrative, documentary, and animated films — all of which demonstrate the power of a well-told story.
AFF provides filmmakers an invaluable platform among industry professionals and film-lovers. Offering A-list jurors, amazing venues, and an opportunity to network and learn, Austin Film Festival is the place to be this October. All of AFF’s juried categories—Narrative Features, Documentary Features, Narrative Shorts, Student Shorts, Animated Shorts, Dark Matters, Documentary Shorts, and our brand new category, Comedy Vanguard—have cash awards. In addition to the competitions, all submissions will be eligible to screen out-of-competition in special sections such as the Texas Independents Series. On top of all that, the winning films in the Narrative Short, Documentary Short, and Animated Short categories are Academy Award®-eligible!
Early Bird Deadline: April 30 ($50)
Regular Deadline: June 16 ($60)
Late Deadline: July 15 ($75)
1st Place Winners in both the Narrative Feature Category and Documentary Feature Category receive a cash prize of $2,500; reimbursement (up to $500) of one round-trip airfare to Austin to attend the 2013 AFF; reimbursement (up to $500) for stay at an AFF hotel during the 2013 Festival; and the AFF Bronze Typewriter Award.
